With so few bookstores remaining, this one is a treasure. While the children's section is a little limited, the toys are a hit. My son loved going in to check out the trucks.

The Eastern European women who man the cash register are courteous. But the owner (a big, older guy) has a real attitude problem toward customers. This morning, I politely asked him a legitimate question, and he sassed me. I tried again, and he sassed me again. Wow. No excuse for that.

I have always loved this book store. It is jam packed full with aisle upon aisle of books, gifts, cards and games. I especially enjoy the many shelves of staff picks and appreciate their committment to local authors and books which they highlight regularly in the front of the store. I noticed recently that they also stock used books which... More

Being a veteran of many, many trips to OC and Rehoboth over the years, this place is one of those "gotta stop here every single time" kinds of places. Even in this era of digital books and chain bookstores and Amazon, it's really quite nice to find a nice, quiet independent bookstore that has been at the beach since the... More

We loved discovering this wonderfully stuffed bookstore with great gifts and shelves crammed with books too. We thoroughly enjoyed browsing slowly through the maze of this store.

When I visit Rehoboth Beach, I always make the time to go to Browseabout Books. The name of the store can be deceiving because they offer more than books. There are toys, many of which are educational and can't be found in "regular" toy stores. There are greeting cards, puzzles, games, etc. I always leave the store with at least... More

Whether a book, card, gift--browseabout has it. If not will help you get it. They had the three books I was searching for, logos for a cousin and unique cards to send to special people. If I needed a cup of Joe could if got that too.

Browseabout has a cheerful, open atmosphere. In addition to having a great selection, the staff are excellent too. It is great to patronize your local bookseller. I've heard they have storytime in the mornings for kids but I have never been.

Browseabout has everything. They have a great book selection and lots of toys for the kids. The staff is friendly and is tolerant of the the little ones playing. We always find great, unique gifts for everyone. The coffee shop has a good selection. The best thing is the prices are reasonable and comparable to larger bookstores. Although I would... More

As we're down in Rehoboth at least once a month, this is the one place we NEVER miss. It's my kids favorite place at the beach...books, toys, things for your house....a great and unique combination. They do benefit from really being the only book store in the area.
